The pack is good for day hikes and at most two days. When packed the outer pockets are hard to get to
so you need to pack them first.

heaviest load was:
1)small camping chair
2)small 2-person tent
3)sleeping bag
4)4 cans soup
5)2 liters water (camel pack)
7)2 pair extra socks
9)small bag of rice
10)2 flashlights

Held everything fine, nothing is easily accessable though.

It's a common conundrum: You need a pack to haul all your backcountry snowboarding gear but you don't want it throwing you off balance on some unforgiving pitch or icy face. The North Face Chugach 18 Board Backpack addresses this concern with a durable stitched backpanel that tapers down at the base for a clean anatomical fit. It's not the perfect solution for all riders, but it's far better than many fat-bottomed alpine packs that want to pull you down the mountain on your back. The North Face Chugach 18 Board Backpack is loaded with plenty of extra features like a lined sunglasses pocket, front shovel pocket and The North Face Fly-Trap board attachment system. You'll also find dual tool loops for your post-snowmelt summer alpine adventures. The Chugach 18 Board Backpack is also hydration system compatible, so you can load your favorite beverage in a hydration pouch or opt for a group of water bottles. The smart versatility won't get in the way of your plans. If you like this design but want a pack that's ski specific, check out The North Face Off Chute 18.
